Hike # 15 Walls of Jericho- 8:15am

Walls of Jericho, Winchester. 7 Miles Difficult. Hike Leader: Sara Pollard

A short car shuttle will allow the hike to start at the Tennessee Trailhead  parking lot for the long decent into the gorge and will return by way of the shorter but steeper Alabama trail.  The “walls” are a impressive geological feature (pictured above) that forms a large bowl shaped amphitheater. This amphitheater has steep 200 foot sheer walls that create the natural defining feature of the amphitheater itself. We will also see many bluffs, large rock outcroppings and caves.
